Another nail in the coffin of e-cigarettes:
"FDA rolls out vaping policy to make it harder for minors to buy flavored products", screams the headline Washington Post!

More and more jurisdictions are coming down hard on e-cigarettes sales, so China must do likewise, not just Shenzhen and Hong Kong alone!

More e-cigarette ban, this time in California!
Media Report:
"California lawmakers advanced a bill Wednesday that would make it the first state to outlaw the sale of both flavored tobacco and nicotine products, substances critics say lure in underage customers.
The proposed legislation, which has passed its first hurdle in the state’s Senate Health Committee, would outlaw the sale of flavored tobacco and flavored nicotine cartridges, which come in alluring flavors that users can load into vaping devices. The legislation also cracks down on flavored hookahs, cigars, cigarillos, chewing tobacco and snuff.
It’s true that researchers have spotted a stunning jump in teen vaping ― the use of e-cigarettes that contain nicotine but not tobacco ― in the past year. From 2017 to 2018, 1.3 million more high schoolers started smoking with vaping devices, a study sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse found in December. It was the the largest annual jump in the use of any substance that the group had ever witnessed in the research project’s 44-year history.
Furthermore, vaping devices still include nicotine, which raises users’ blood pressure and increases their likelihood of having a heart attack.
There are already more than two dozen counties and cities in California with laws on the books restricting the sale of these flavored products.
The Food and Drug Administration is cracking down on them, too. Earlier this month, it proposed rules requiring retailers to only display these items in a section of the store that’s off-limits to anyone under the age of 18, essentially preventing convenience stores and gas stations from selling the products."
